This is another example of why I really believe that '85 is the best of the 80's. I'm not saying every show of that year is the best of the 80's - but overall, despite what we did not know about Jerry's health (but could see/hear from the crowd) this year is dynamite.

I had forgotten how great this Stella Blue was. I used to listen to set 2 while jogging and could go forever - so it seemed. 36 1/2 years later I can see why.

Great Scarlet>Touch. Many versions of Scarlet>Fire are up for discussion as being awesome and mind blowing. I think with the segue into Touch we were all pleasantly suprised (yes, this was before Touch was MTV material). While Women are Smarter is not a definitive in terms of "making" a set - this version, like several others from this era - has that jump start and vocal interchange between Weir and Brent. Not as hot as say Stranger, but pretty sweet.
The post- drums is an earful of 'A' material.
Stella Blue is gorgeous and the guitar work by Garcia and Weir is almost haunting.
Naturally Bob breaks out the stops for Round>Good Lovin.

Day Job. I think that song has been discussed and it was what it was.

BTW - first set is not too shabby. Garcia - as always - picks his numbers wonderfully, even in a short set. Sugaree, Peggy-O>Ramble On> Row James.

Someone mentioned Kansas City and while Weir introduces it as a result of the Royals winning the World Series, I wished it had stuck around for a bit longer. But then I heard a ton of cc riders in my day.

Btw 2 - who knew what was to come on 10/31, 11/1/ and 11/2. The next night at Fox is good, as well. But for my money this is the show.

God Bless and Enjoy

I love to listen to shows I attended all those many years ago..... Thanks!!! It was a very fun night!!!

I never realized that I was lucky enough to see a song the Dead only played twice! This was the first time they played 'Kansas City" and looks like they only played it one other time a few days later.

I was also in Vt on in June of 1995 to see the first "Rollin' and Tumblin'"..... They only played that twice also, a few days later..... R.I.P. J.G.

Subject: Very,
very hot show, and a very good recording, if a little treble-high and bottom-low. But everything after Promised Land is mislabeled, as someone forgot that the encore was moved between the sets.

Great soundboard of a great '85 show. Thanks for the transfer, Mr. Miller!
